Notes from My Weekend




Saturday: I spent my late night hours baking salt dough for a couple of upcoming projects. It was a frustrating process, but I ended up a lot more resourceful than I thought I would be when I started the process. I went on a six a.m. grocery run, which was wonderful. There were only three or so other shoppers, and the Spring heat was far from creeping up so early.

Y'all know me though, I can't let everything run smoothly. I was having extreme PMS in the form of lightheadedness and exhaustion. I slept through midday, and woke up in the evening in time to make dinner, and take another nap. I lived Saturday to the fullest. I woke up to the moon, and spent a little bit of time outside under her. On to technical Sunday...





Sunday: I barely slept on Sunday, and I'm not sure how that even happened. Actually, I just couldn't sleep, that's how. At one point in the morning (after sunrise), I found myself missing Autumn something fierce. I threw together pumpkin spice cookie dough, watched one of my favorite Halloween cartoons, and promptly fell asleep for an hour. I think Halloween was the trick.

Early afternoon was spent with family. I went with my parents to visit my grandfather in the hospital, and then we ended up leaving the hospital with my grandmother to have a massive, glorious lunch. I think it was Mother's Day done right in the end. Afterwards, I floated through a car wash, bought some incense, and went home to nap again. I baked the pumpkin cookies late in the evening, and ate my lunch leftovers. I had Foolish by Ashanti stuck in my head the entire day. It's in my head as I type this. Worth noting. 



What did you do this weekend?

  1. hahah you're the only one I can say to that I miss fall too. Like yes, I love all the light and sun and blablabla of spring. But hello fall, rain, colorful trees and just everything. Hahah, I miss my intense tea consumption too. Too hot to drink more than three cups a day now. Lol!

    Anyways, have a lovely week Amber! Xx

    1. Oooh, salt dough is so fun, and all of the ingredients are in your kitchen. You might have to use a conversion, but the recipe I use calls for 5 cups of flour, 1 cup of salt, and 1 1/2 cups of warm water. Mix it all together and shape however you want. Bake at 350 (F) for 90 minutes.

      Let me know what you think if you try it out!

  3. A 6am grocery run sounds awesome! I just wished that grocery stores (or any shops) were open that early in Australia! You always make your weekends sound so chill. Even when you’re busy!

    1. Yeah, it was stereotypical American Wal-Mart, but I live in a super small town, and that's the closest big grocery store. The other closer one isn't open that early. Wal-Mart is open 24/7, so sacrifices had to be made lol.

      I'm flattered that you think so, thank you!
